in newtown, connecticut this morning. then, took the three weapons she owned, a glock, a sig sauer handgun, and he gained entrance to the school through security, and then, opened fire. we know police responded. you heard the tapes we know they called in reenforcements. officers didn't waist time. they went into the school got kids in the survivors out of the school, moved them to a nearby fire house, set up as a staging area that. is where frantic parents were directed to collect their children, and take care of their kids, and get them home, safely, sean. >> sean: a couple things emerged one teacher has gn on record. the school had added in security. you would have to be identified, then buzzed into the school. at this point the shooter immediately went to the administration and what we learn sthad this is during morning announcements. at that time, someone kept up announcement, that served as a warning for people in the school, and a lot of other stories of heroism, including custodian and teachers whachl have you heard today? >> we have heard some of the children and adults in the loud

years old. that's just around the time he stopped taking classes at western connecticut state university. now, this is according to the connecticut post which first broke the story and has this latest development on adam lanza's interest in the military. maryanne, thank you for taking the time of i can you spoke to one of nancy lanza's good friends. she told you adam was interested in joining the military. what was about it the military that made him interested? >> reporter: i think he had, what we're piecing together from ellen and other sources is that he had a fascination for a long ways back with things military-related. military equipment. he was a very, very bright young man. and when he first expressed that interest which was around the time he was ending his course work at western connecticut state university, initially his mother was very supportive of the idea and that's what several sources have told me. she was initially very supportive of it because it would have given him organization, structure, a career path even. and he was a very, very bright person. but as time wore on
quiet in the days following the newtown, connecticut, shooting, giving people time to mourn. now they are speaking up and they have a lot to say. despite protesters, the president and public opinion increasingly pushing against the gun lobby, the national rifle association sent a sharp message to its leader, wayne lapierre, no retreat. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with an a gun is a good guy with a gun. i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. >> reporter: in a wide-ranging statement, lapierre condemned the violence in connecticut, colorado and other places, but steered the conversation away from guns and gun law. indeed he lambasted officials who want to restrict guns from schools. >> in doing so they tell every insane killer in america that schools are the safest place to inflict maximum mayhem with minimum risk. >> the nra has blood on its hands. >> reporter: despite twice being interrupted by protesters, lapierre went on to blame the media. >> a child growing
states. >>> terror at an elementary school in connecticut. >> 20 children dead, six adults are also dead. >> so our hearts are broken today. for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children. may god bless the memory of the victims. >> thanks so much for starting your morning with us. we've got much more ahead on cnn's saturday morning which starts right now. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. it is 7:00 on the east coast, 4:00 a.m. out west, thanks for starting your day with us. victor blackwell is on assignment. >>> we start with the big countdown, ten days left for the white house and congress to reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff where millions of americans will be paying the price in their paychecks. but congress is now on holiday recess. and president obama is in hawaii. let's go straight to cnn's emily schmidt in washington. good morning. so before he left the capitoal, he laid out this three-point plan to washington. >> before he left to hawaii, he left for a gift for lawmakers to ponder in washington. here are the three main points he's
in congress. the tragedy, at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, claimed the lives of 27 people, including 20 children understandably provoking calls for solutions, prevention of such bloodshed ever again. the di to control the inexplicable and the unpredictable. >> are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the case of such carnage? the politics are too hard? are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom? lou: several democratic lawmakers echoing the president's sentimentses within only hours of the shooting pushing for second amendment restrictions and tougher gun control laws nationwide. the senate's number two democrat says congressional hearings on gun control are on the way. senator dianne feinstein of california determined to get an assaults weapon ban on the floor this week, and schumer of new york sensing a political opportunity outlining to task gun control legislation this time. >> i think we could be at a tipping point for two reasons, a tipping point where we might a
? >> craig melvin, the latest on another sad day, one of so many sad days in newtown, connecticut. thank you. >>> president obama today made it clear that when it comes to guns, doing something is better than nothing. >> if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. the fact that this problem is complexed can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing. >> and meanwhile, on capitol hill, nancy pelosi gathered democratic lawmakers around her to accelerate their push for legislation. among them, caroline mccarthy from new york, long a leader of the effort, joining me now. congresswoman, thank you very much. it's fair to note that this cause for you is personal. it's why you got into politics. when i first met you, you were running, and it was because your husband, dennis, had been one of six people killed in 1993 in the shooting on the long island railroad when colin ferguson, that man, boarded the train and gunned them down and your son also was so seriously injured, your son kevin. how that inspired you and the passion of
or in connecticut had there been the ability to have a lawfully possessed firearm by a teacher, but you know what? we do know the exact number that were killed, 26, in connecticut, when there wasn't the ability to carry a firearm. these are trained professionals, teachers who just want to protect themselves. >> dennis, i want you to an to what clark said there. he did bring up the nea. >> i think the national education association has done much to increase the safety of bo students and adults who work in school. i just don't believe that bringing more guns into the school enhances the safety of students. policemen are given incredible training in order to not only how to use a firearm, but when and how to shoot it. we've had incidents with police that even innocent bystanders have been killed. the idea that a teacher who receives a course in gun safety is prepared to deal with a situation in school doesn't make sense. we need to make sure that there are common-sense law that is keep the guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. i think part of the discussion has to be the backgroun
